I’d like to know if I should re do my reports, as I don’t know if they are done “the right way”.
Right now, I have ~50 different Section Reports (done in VS). Inside my section reports, I have ~10 headers and footers, each containing a sub report. In the sub reports, I create graphs and other things at run time (not using the designer, as the sub reports are also Section Reports). This feels like the wrong way to do things, as my designer tab is filled with headers/footers and it’s hard to understand whats going on. Is this the correct way of creating the reports or is there a better alternative?
Also, amongst reports there are similar information (i.e. the header should be the same across every page of each of the 50 reports, but I need to do that manually). Is there any way to do put the header somewhere once, and include it in all my reports?
If I use a Page Report, there’s no option for a header. Why’s that?
And finally, can I have a sub report of any type? I.e. can I have a Page Report as a sub report in my Section Report?
Thanks in advance!
